A girl who hasnt seen her boyfriend in two days finds out the shocking truth

His name is Chris
the reason why i exist
His dirty blond hair and bright blue eyes
I love his outsides but more so whats inside

He dropped me off two days ago,
haven't seen him since
Late one night I lay on the couch and turn the local news on
A robbery here a robberythere a fire somewhere east of where I live
A boy had been shot thats no surprise seeing as I live in a rough spot
As im about to close my eyes I spot the picture of the boy
I know that face, that dirty blond hair, those bright blue, that crooked smile

I'm glued in my spot, cant even breathe
my eyes are frozen on the tv screen
the anchor woman talks about the death
I wish i was dreaming i wish it wasnt true
but I know as sure i know that face its him
she said the boy died that night and his name was chris

awwwww, thats so sad! My tears swelled up and I realized that the boy who she liked was the one who got shot. your really good.

Only one suggestion. In the second stanza there were rhyming words in the same line, & I just thought that they should be different lines instead of the same line. thats just my opinion tho.

I'm going to read more now.
